# asCurrency()

Formats the value as a currency number.

This function does not requires the PHP intl extension (opens new window) to be installed to work but it is highly recommended to install it to get good formatting results.

View source (opens new window)

Arguments

Returns

string (opens new window) – The formatted result.

Throws

# asDate()

Formats the value as a date.

View source (opens new window)

Arguments

The formatter will convert date values according to timeZone (opens new window) before formatting it. If no timezone conversion should be performed, you need to set defaultTimeZone (opens new window) and timeZone (opens new window) to the same value. Also no conversion will be performed on values that have no time information, e.g. "2017-06-05".

This can be "short", "medium", "long", or "full", which represents a preset format of different lengths. It can also be a custom format as specified in the ICU manual (opens new window).

Alternatively this can be a string prefixed with php: representing a format that can be recognized by the PHP date() (opens new window)-function.

Returns

string (opens new window) – The formatted result.

Throws

# asDatetime()

Formats the value as a datetime.

Throws

# asShortSize()

Since
3.4.0

Formats the value in bytes as a size in human readable form for example 12 kB.

This is the short form of asSize() (opens new window).

If sizeFormatBase (opens new window) is 1024, binary prefixes (opens new window) (e.g. kibibyte/KiB, mebibyte/MiB, ...) are used in the formatting result.
